GLENN: I want to play Robert Gibbs and the audio that happened yesterday. Who is asking him this question yesterday, Pat?

PAT: One of the reporters on at MS I mean I think NBC.

GLENN: NBC reporter.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Asked Robert Gibbs about the Slaughter rule which will be the way they pass healthcare without voting on it. So, in other words, you don't have to vote on it. You just pass this little Slaughter rule and it will it will say it's like we passed it. Now, I don't know for the life of me how anyone is dumb enough to think the American people aren't going to remember that and how these people are actually going to try to look you in the eye and say, oh, no, no, no, I didn't vote for that. I just voted for the Slaughter rule. No, I didn't vote for healthcare reform. I'm thinking about this and I hear Robert Gibbs and this exchange.

VOICE: Do you believe the Deem and Pass scenario constitutes an up or down vote?

GIBBS: I think that I think that you're going to ask people how they stand on healthcare. You're not going to ask them how they stand on Deem and Pass. You're going to have a vote count that constructs not the process for the rule but where you are on healthcare.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Then why would you do Deem and Pass? Why would you do that? We're going to ask about healthcare, not Deem and Pass. Remember, first they wanted to do it by the the right way. First Barack Obama says, you know, there's no way you can do this with 51 votes because you won't be able to rule like that. You won't be able to rule like that, won't be able to govern like that. So, we can't do it where 51 votes. Well, they couldn't do it with 60. Now they're just trying to do it with 51 votes. They couldn't get 51 votes. So, then they decide, well, we'll just do reconciliation. We'll just we'll just pass it by the House. Well, no, no. Then that wouldn't work. So, then what? So, then they go from reconciliation to Deem and Pass, the Slaughter rule. But before they say that, they say we just want a straight up or down. We just want a straight or or down vote, yes or no. We just thumbs up, thumbs down. They can't get that. Deem and Pass. By hook or by crook, anyway they can and she pushes him on it.

Voice: up or down vote, you would be satisfied with this Deem and Pass bill?

GIBBS: I think that again, I think that again, I think there are many that would want to inflate this process into something that's different than the product.

VOICE: Pelosi said, and I'm quoting, I like it, this scenario, because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill.

GIBBS: I would ask for

VOICE: (Inaudible.)

GIBBS: I would ask one of her capable spokespeople on what she had to say.

VOICE: Okay. Wait all right. But would you say there seems to be some inconsistency between what she says and having an up or down vote?

GIBBS: (Inaudible.)

VOICE: Okay. Then real quickly do you would you agree that it exacerbates the perception that his is a dirty or underhanded process?

GIBBS: No, no. Of course not.

VOICE: And, now, scattered showers of journalism.

GLENN: Well, it was.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: Yeah. It was nice. It was somebody from NBC, too.

PAT: Savannah Guthrie is her name and for him to say, as you just went through the whole process of how they've been trying to get this thing passed and then for them to do this sleazy maneuver and claim that nobody cares about the process, it's just don't even worry about the process. The process isn't important. It's just whether or not we get this thing passed.

GLENN: We played the audio of Chuck Schumer yesterday. Can we play the audio again? Here's Chuck Schumer behind closed doors in a conference on you know, look. There's a lot of things that we can do and not just on this but, you know, sure, we need we need two thirds to be able to pass anything, you know, to change any of the rules in the Constitution but we've got some other ideas. Here he is.

SCHUMER: This is something that people have looked at (inaudible.) So, you can't just rush it out. You have to really study it carefully and that's what the hearing (inaudible) and the rules committee who has jurisdiction over what this is intended to. There have been some very interesting papers written that said that the Constitutional right, for instance, of the Senate to make its own rules supercedes the two thirds that you can't change the rules but only when Congress writes new rules at the beginning of each Congress, every two year period where we reorganize ourselves.

PAT: Wow.

SCHUMER: That's something we want to explore.

PAT: I'll bet. I'll bet.

GLENN: That's, by the way, exclusive audio, taped by the friend of the program. There's exclusive audio for you of we'll play by any rules that we want. Now, here's, here's where I want to go. I want you to listen to this. This is the fundamental transformation of America. This is it. This is it. The reason why this is hook or crook is because they've got to they will do whatever they can, because all of their power is here. It is in this bill. This is it. This is the moment of transformation.

Now, I ask you to do two things. First it you to answer does it make sense that they would pass this in way, shape, or form and they would blame it on the Republicans. They're not bribing the Republicans. I don't know if they know this, but Dennis Kucinich is not a republican. They're bribing the Democrats. There won't be a single republican voting for this bill and if there is, that republican will be voted out of office, guaranteed. So, this is a 100% democratic bill. The benefits don't start in until between 2014 and 2015. Your tax burdens and everything else begin immediately. So, how do they expect to be reelected?

Now, I guess the answer be can be, well, because they think we're stupid and maybe that's it. Maybe that's it. But I think it is more likely that this has so much power and control in it, they're not worried about elections. But if it is this important and it is going to tear this country in half, it is going to destroy healthcare. If it is truly this important and you truly believe in it, put your name on it; but they don't want to do that. Nancy Pelosi likes this idea because that way you don't have to have your name on it. Let me just read portions of the last part of the Declaration of Independence.

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince whose character is, thus, marked by every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of free people. Nor have we been wanting inattentions for our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend the unwarrantable justification of jurisdictions over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our immigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice. We have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow the use of these usurpations. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice. We, therefore, must denounce our separation, hold them as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace, friends. We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in general Congress assembled, appealing to the supreme judge of the world, do in the name and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, do solemnly publish and declare that these united colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent.

Now, when they write that it ought to be totally dissolved, that they now have all the power, these men, no different than the members of Congress now except maybe in honor and integrity and spine. They knew when they signed this it was not that they were going to be voted out of office when they signed this after they had done everything they could. When they signed this, they knew it would be a death warrant! We will hang together or we will hang separately, but we will hang. And one by one they put their name on it. John Hancock's signature is the size that he the is because he said he wanted the king to be able to see his name without putting his spectacles on. They knew it was a death warrant and this Congress is so unlike any Congress we have ever had. This Congress is so unlike our founders that they don't even want their name on healthcare! The first Congress, which was no different, it had its bad apples in it, it had its problems, they wrote, and in support of this declaration with firm reliance on the protection of divine providence. What do you think they meant by protection? It wasn't SEIU they were worried about being protected from. It wasn't the unions that they thought would protect them. They were worried about their own life and they knew God would protect them, because they were living and doing moral and just things, out in the open, with their names on it. That's why they could, in the end, in the last line before their names, and in support of this declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
